    Thanks Gaufrid,

    Kind of you to reply so quickly. Please don’t feel bad about mentioning what might be obvious but in fact I had made sure that option was ticked (and I also tried it without but it made no difference). Strangely, I had the app some time ago on a previous computer and had no problem then, which was why I was all the more surprised when I had these printing problems. It is at least a little comforting to realise that I’m not the only one (although clearly in a very small minority!)

    Alan, I get this too. I think it’s something to with your printer driver.

    If you’ve not already solved this here’s how I get round it.

    Solution 1 (not so good)

    My printer is an HP Deskjet 3070 which is OK but pretty basic. If I go to Properties on the Print window where I choose the printer I can choose an “Advanced” button. Here are various default options.

    One is Borderless Printing which seems to default to “Print with Border”. Printing with this option gives what you describe. If I change this to “Print Borderless” the print is all on the page but the last bit of the page is in Blue!

    Solution 2 (Better)

    If you’re using Windows 7 or Vista print your crossword to the “Microsdoft XPS Document Writer”. This writes the print to an XPS file for which you have to choose a name and location.

    Double click on this file afterwards and it will open in the “XPS Viewer”. It should look OK and printing from here will also be OK.
